The future of structural biology is now

Imaging CoE Director, Professor James Whisstock, and Monash University’s Vice-Provost for Research and Research Infrastructure, Professor Ian Smith, discuss how state-of-the-art technologies at the new Clive and Vera Ramaciotti Centre for Structural Cryo-Electron Microscopy will help find solutions to the most complex biological problems.

Providing the latest technologies is at the forefront of Monash University’s agenda as a world-leading research university, helping to maintain the institution’s global competitiveness and allowing its scientists to continue to reach into the unknown.

Produced by the Centre’s key instrumentation supplier, FEI Company – the world’s largest manufacturer of electron microscopes – this video highlights how their technologies will be used to push the frontiers of structural biology. Keeping abreast of the latest innovations enables researchers at the Imaging CoE and Monash to continue gaining fresh insights into the structure of key protein complexes associated with diseases in order to develop ground-breaking therapeutics.
